Gotta leave the matrix and make human contact to truly engage on the topic of who art is for. Tapped on to the homie, Ron Wimberly aka DPi, in the pursuit of this answer. We met a bar near his crib in BK.
Ron is a story teller who uses drawings, illustrations, even sketches to help convey these tales that he weaves. While he’s used his art to even share the stories of others whose names may seem more familiar to you, like Marvel and DC Comics, its the narratives that he conjures up that are the ones that a pure, raw, uncut sophisticated DOPE.
Wimberly continues to feed our hunger for creative freshness with his latest project, LAAB. LAAB is collective art newspaper dismantles the lethal stereotypes of black identity in sci-fi & pop culture. It will be an annual newspaper-format review full of comics, criticism, interviews, artwork, and writing on identity and popular culture.
